The leader of China Mission’s TL Youth Ministry reports, “There was a sister whose son had a very intense relationship with his family members.

When his Mom heard of our ministry, she invited us to her home to share and pray with her son. God’s love and truth changed the parents and the son. The whole family started to embrace each other and gave all the glory to God.” Praise God for this transformation!

The first thing they did was to look for a local church where they could congregate. Also, they told us that in their jobs in factories, they are sharing God’s love with other young coworkers. The seed that was planted in the feeding centre is now bearing fruit.”

“What does it mean when we say we are making our bed?” asks Living Word Ministries’ Barb Lataillade. “Usually it means we are pulling up the sheets, and getting the bed ready for bedtime. In Mayette, Patrick [Lataillade] said they made the bed. This bed was a new bed, with drawers underneath for clothes, and perfectly assembled. They delivered it up the mountain as far as they could go, then carried the bed the rest of the way to the house of a widow and her daughter. They never had a bed. They had used cement blocks and padded them a little for a bed. The blocks were disintegrating, and no longer usable. When they saw the new bed, they cried. Patrick said they couldn’t quit hugging him for giving such a gift.” Praise God for His provision through LWM.
